Honestly, this production was rather disappointing--and we ADORE "Camelot"! Aside from the excellent actors who played Arthur, Pellinore, and the knights, the acting was... continued

Johnny Moreno (King Arthur) has that star quality, and whenever he was acting or singing, it was really excellent. The rest of the production really didn't work for me. I... continued

I would give this production a "B." One of the major roles was miscast, otherwise
it went off well. As for the theater, the seats are very uncomfortable,... continued

Athough I am familiar with the music and the voices were OK, I found it a little bit amateur.
Maybe with some polishing and a different scenography could help

I was out with friends otherwise probably would have left at the intermission. Worst show I've seen at Playhouse. Perhaps they were going for high school musical vibe -... continued

I'm afraid my husband was bored but I really enjoyed the show. I remembered all the words from my childhood and it was great to revisit. Great set and wonderful voices. I had a great time and would recommend it.

The seats assigned to us were in the first row. Distance to stage was about 5 feet. Stage was at our eye-level! And the actors spent most of time on set elevated above... continued

SF Playhouse is a great company but they should not do musicals or at least hire singers and actors. Save your money on this one!

The three of us were disappointed. I think Bill English was too ambitious. the set was clunky and massive and turned this way and that but it felt intrusive. Of course... continued

We left at intermission. Arthur was okay. The production was quite amatuerish. Guenivere didn't have the needed range for the songs. Came across shrill. Given Merlin's costuming, we couldn't bear to see how Mordred would be handled.

My friend and I enjoyed this and we thought all of the actors did very well. Camelot is slow moving in general and the songs are not show stoppers by any means. Still... continued

After SF Playhouse's terrific "My Fair Lady" and "Abigail's Party," this feels like a misstep. Though Monique Hafen is terrific as Guenevere, Johnny Moreno lacks the... continued

Loved it! Our seats were perfect, and the play was great. Arthur and Lancelot were wonderfully cast, and the whole production was smooth and very professional.

Just really excellent production, I loved it, in spite of poor seat/sightlines, which seems to be par for the course for their Goldstar patrons. The acting and play... continued

Great set, some very good acting, but the play itself is just dated.

The set was very impressive, even before the show began. Too bad it had obstructed sightlines from my seat at the end of the front row. The company seemed overwhelmed... continued
